In their annual rivalry game at USC, it was said that UCLA head coach Chip Kelly would be fired afterward. Instead, UCLA powered to a 38-20 win over the Trojans. With the heat off him and the Bruins, Kelly’s team was then routed in the Senior Night home finale by the 6-6 Cal Bears. Thus, the season ended with a thud and with doubts about the future. UCLA will face the Boise State Broncos in the LA Bowl.

Once upon a time, the UCLA Bruins were a national power in college football. This basketball school became known as a perennial Pac-12 title contender and top-10 team. From 1965 through 1998, UCLA finished in the national top 20 a total of 20 times. And that included ten top-10 finishes. Since then, the going has been much tougher.

UCLA does not emphasize football like other national powers. It considers itself an all-sports school. But Oregon and USC are Pac-12 powers that invest more in football. And the results speak for themselves.

UCLA has 17 conference titles and two division championships. They have one national championship (1954). However, UCLA’s last conference championship was in 1998.

Past UCLA coaching greats include Tommy Prothro, Pepper Rodgers, Dick Vermeil, and Terry Donahue.

College Football Hall of Fame Bruins includes Troy Aikman, Gary Beban, Randy Cross, Tom Fears, Billy Kilmer, and Kohn Sciarra. The late great Jackie Robinson, who broke baseball’s color barrier, was a Bruin safety in 1939-40.
